IV Charting-Titration

  1. i work in an infusion clinic where we frequently titrate meds. I always chart the next ramp up, pt condition etc but it is taking so long as some titrate every 15 mins.

    Im wondering if others chart that much and if so, what do you chart and any ideas to cut the time down?

    If it wasn't charted...it wasn't done. So yeah, I chart every bump in titration, patient vitals and reactions or lack of them at every bump. The one thing I do in advance is plan out when my bumps in rate are going to be and put them in. Then I can quickly adjust the time if needed and put in the vitals etc at each one. It only saves a few keystrokes, but it FEELS a little better.
